The postholder will report to the Archaeology Subject Lead, and work closely with other members of the Archaeology team, as well as with colleagues in the cognate discipline of History.
The School is committed to an inclusive curriculum which aims to improve the experience, skills and attainment of all students. Your responsibilities will include playing a commensurate role in the collaborative development of an inclusive curriculum, and in the enhancement of the student experience; to that end, you will be required to provide pastoral, as well as academic, support to students, and contribute to the management of the Archaeology course.
